Bride & Groom dance is usually first.  Then any other special dances before opening the dance floor up to everyone.  That way you don’t have people dancing, then forced to stop and politely watch before starting to dance again.

There is no standard, and this is not the realm of etiquette, but my favorite order is:

  1. Bride and Groom have first dance immediately after grand entrance.
  2. (Optional) invite bridal party or all guests to join
  3. Optional: bridal party dance
  4. Dinner
  5. Father-Daughter
  6. Mother-Son
